White House tries erasing ACORN ties to Big Labor

posted at 11:36 am on September 24, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Why did Labor Secretary Hilda Solis move quickly to change disclosure requirements for unions and their political activities?  Don Loos at Big Government connects the dots and discovers the Obama administration’s attempts to get their allies in Big Labor out of the line of ACORN fire.  For instance, the education unions NEA and AFT both gave big money to the very office in New York City that offered free advice on hiding child prostitution and tax evasion:

Even before U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was sworn in, Big Labor insiders like AFL-CIO lawyer and Obama appointee Deborah Greenfield were busily dismantling useful union financial disclosures produced by former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao.  It’s another Big Government – Big Labor partnership aimed at keeping individual workers, whom they claim to represent, in the dark.

Why the hurry? Perhaps Union Bosses wanted to prevent the Virginia GOP and inquisitive people like Patrick Semmens from visiting DOL’s UnionReports.gov website that clearly reveals the Big Labor-ACORN collusion.  Semmens discovered that teachers’ union bosses gave about $500,000 to the same Brooklyn ACORN office exposed on BigGovernment.com.  Both the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) awarded ACORN service contracts.

That’s right; union bosses gave teachers’ forced union dues to the same ACORN that appeared to have no problem facilitating child prostitution.  No wonder Solis’ Big Labor friends want to shutdown financial disclosure!

Before 2008, unions could hide these connections in murky financial records that even their own members could not access.  Towards the end of the Bush administraton, Chao promulgated new transparency requirements that forced unions to divulge their political activities.  Loos provides graphic evidence for the massive improvement in transparency between the status quo and the status quo ante.

Barack Obama ran for office on a promise of increased transparency.  Instead, he has had his Labor Depatrtment move in the exact opposite direction to provide political cover for unions and their ties to political organizing groups like ACORN — groups that also work to elect Democrats.  We should demand that Solis stop dismantling these transparency regulations and for Obama to fulfill this campaign promise.  Be sure to read it all.

This story is precisely why EFCA should not pass. Using funds to promote organizations such as ACORN does NOT benefit the laborers themselves.

Clearly, the words, “The Secretary shall have authority to issue, amend, and rescind rules and regulations … as he may find necessary to prevent the circumvention or evasion of such reporting requirements.” do not grant Secretary Solis the authority to rescind disclosure that by the Department’s own admission will aid in the evasion of the Act. Undoubtedly, Solis’ plan to eliminate disclosure will only aid in circumventing the disclosure, not preventing it.

All that needs to be said. Now we need to act.

Deborah Greenfield said she is being subjected to toxic gases and radiation that alter her physical and mental state that cuased her to destroy and hide these records.

WashJeff on September 24, 2009 at 11:51 AM

Under what guise are they removing the rules for disclosure?

Abby Adams on September 24, 2009 at 11:41 AM

From the Breitbart article:

The Office of Labor-Management Standards will publish in the spring 2009 Semi-Annual Regulatory Agenda notice of an intended rulemaking to revise the Form LM-30 (Labor Organization Officer and Employee [Conflict-of-Interest] Report). The rulemaking is intended to review questions of policy and law surrounding these reporting requirements. The rulemaking will focus on the changes resulting from a 2007 regulatory revision of the Form and instructions. This revision dramatically altered the old Form LM-30 and instructions, which had not substantially changed in over 40 years. Despite the promulgation of the new Form LM-30, fundamental questions regarding the scope and extent of the reporting obligations are unanswered, and litigation challenging some aspects of the form remains pending. Yet, by March 31, 2009, reports for calendar year 2008 must be filed. In light of this uncertainty, the pending regulatory action, the pending litigation and the rapidly approaching filing deadline, OLMS has determined that it would not be a good use of resources to bring enforcement actions based upon a failure to use a specific form to comply with the statutory obligation to report certain financial information. Accordingly, OLMS will refrain from initiating enforcement actions against union officers and union employees based solely on the failure to file the report required by section 202 of the Labor-Management and Reporting Disclosure Act (LMRDA), 29 U.S.C. § 432, using the 2007 form, as long as individuals meet their statutorily-required filing obligation in some manner. OLMS will accept either the old Form LM-30 or the new one for purposes of this non-enforcement policy.

In other words, it’s because someone complained about the revised LM-30 form — or, as Solis put it “pending litigation” — nothing more. Given that the Bush Administration did not do this, I suspect that the “pending litigation” has not resulted in a judge staying use of the revised form, otherwise she would have been quite specific about that.

Obama to amend report on $800,000 in spending

From the story:

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now for services the Democrat’s campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports.

An Obama spokesman said Federal Election Commission reports would be amended to show Citizens Services Inc. — a subsidiary of ACORN — worked in “get-out-the-vote” projects, instead of activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as stated in FEC finance reports filed during the primary.

Fox reported nothing more. I suppose it could be as limited to looking only into what ACORN did under the VITA program. I’m hoping that it’s more extensive–a review of ACORN’s 501(c)(3) (public-charity) status.

Unions. Some of the more relevant unions had combined several hundred million liquidity before the election. Layoffs on top of lavish campaign spending have caused many to spend all and they now borrow money. The huge drop in the market came while they were spending large.
Next election, the unions will have 75% less money to spend on campaigns.
I see it is now difficult for a union to borrow money from a bank because of their reputation falling in a cesspool.

I’m sure it has become an overused comparison and somewhat of a cliche, but I can’t help expressing astonishment at how much this administration’s words and actions remind me of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” and “1984.” The hypocrisy, propaganda, cult of personality and the insidious encroachment on individual liberties through all means possible, is incredible.

“Transparency” isn’t transparency, anymore. The “Fairness Doctrine” isn’t fair. The dark ties between the White House, ACORN, unions and the press are like something out of a suspense movie.

On the other hand, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Gaddafi are all becoming big fans of what is happening to America.

Too bad Elaine Chao was so ignored by conservatives. She was one of the best people in Bush’s cabinet, or any other. It took a lot of guts for her to insist in these new union disclosure rules. The unions were apoplectic about them from the get-go and did everything they could to stop Chao from implementing them. The LAST thing unions want is transparency about how they spend their members’ COMPULSORY dues. Chao’s philosophy was, hey, if you want to force people to pay dues, you have to tell them how their money is being spent. What a concept!

Hilda Solis:

Before being appointed to her new role, Solis served on the board of American Rights at Work with several DSA supporters including David Bonior, then AFL-CIO president John Sweeney, labor economist Harley Shaiken and NAACP leader Julian Bond.

Hilda Solis was a keynote speaker at the DSA national conference “21st Century Socialism” in Los Angeles in November 2005.

Saturday evening delegates recognized the contributions of DSA vice chair and Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson [note: Meyerson has a ludicrous column up today defending ACORN], Occidental College sociologist and longtime DSAer Peter Dreier and insurgent California Congress member Hilda Solis who in turn provided in-depth perspectives of the political scene.

In June 2008, the Socialist International Migrations Committee held a Migrations Reform, Integration, Rights forum in Los Angeles.

DSA was represented by National Director Frank Llewellyn plus Duane Campbell and Dolores Delgado Campbell of DSA’s Anti Racism and Latino networks.

Hilda Solis was formally represented by Elena Henry, a caseworker from Solis’ East Los Angeles Office.

In 2008 Hilda Solis served on Barack Obama’s National Latino Advisory Council alongside DSA honorary chair and SEIU vice president Eliseo Medina.

The new Golden Rule.

The teacher’s unions were together with ACORN during the well organize illegal rallies in America a few years ago when Mc Bush tried to open our borders.

That teacher unions aren’t embarassed by being handholding friends with people who deal in protecting illegal underage prostitution, is almost as silly as their attachment to the abortion lobby. Image a union surviving and thriving, that advocates for the killing off its future clients. Perhaps its membership needs an education, starting with a course on stupidity.
